Black Doll Affair Operation INSPIRE Porcelain Pal Mark to Walk Again!

Mom, dad, teachers, as you can see from the Mother Doll's comments below, this is a wonderful exercise for getting your children warmed up to the idea of giving back and being there for others - those they know and don't know. #youngphilanthropists

http://youtu.be/xnjCJ3l9jII

Deadline for us to receive your letter / message of support  by mail is Wednesday, November 13th. Mail to The Black Doll Affair 3000 Windy Hill Road Suite[masked] Marietta, GA. 30006

It's every mother's worst nightmare...that phone call informing her that her child has been involved in a serious car collision ...


http://youtu.be/5vBm9EPtzlE

As Mama Doll promised in her latest video address, "The Future of The Black Doll Affair, here is yet another opportunity for hue to build your legacy in giving back and asking the Doll in the mirror "Hue did you help today?? Well, here's a simple way to help...

Person in Need: Friend of the family, Mark Delamere, 15 yrs. old

HELP Needed: With a serious spinal cord injury, Mark could use INSPIRATION to help him walk again! Via inspiring letters, let's send Mark the strength it will take to get his life back on track and his feet back on the ground!

Connection to The Black Doll Affair family. Only child of Mark Senior & wife Sheila - friends of Mama Doll & Joe - Mama's beau.

Dear Dollfriends, Mark was seriously injured in a car accident on September 6, 2013 returning home from his high school, Boston Latin Academy. Unfortunately, he has sustained a severe injury to his spinal cord. Mark has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but he is a determined young man and is fighting everyday to get better. Initially and currently, Mark will be treated at The Shepherd Center here in Atlanta, which specializes in therapy for spinal cord injuries. While here, we will deliver to Mark letters of inspirations on the road to his recovery. Having had his world turned upside down, Mark has days that he could really use some cheering up! Hue ready? Let's roll out!

Join Mark's classmates & childhood friends {Below pictures of them are courtesy of Facebook Photos} in banding together and sending him some love!

On behalf of Mark, his parents Mama & her Joey, we thank hue! 

XoXo

    I have not been able to complete this. I have been attending to the care of my mother (most recently, she has undergone multiple surgeries). If Sam and I create a video message, will Mark be able to view it?

    This is awesome! My two boys and I will send some words of encouragement in the form of cards.

    November 4, 2013

  • zena d

    I have asked a dear friend of mine, along with some of the parents of our severely disabled students to provide some encouragement to this young man and his family. These families, and my little 15 year old Alumnae of The Elaine Clark Center, know the battles daily of hearing, feeling and seeing the "not so good" in life, and making that lemonade anyway. Kay, the 15 yr old has a form of Spinabifida. She has been through several surgeries, therapies, and missed a complete year of high school due to her disability, but she and that wheel chair go to infinity and beyond!! So, I hope our attempt to inspire will be a great one, because the families were so great about letting me share photos of their teens to encourage Mark, that regardless of the terrible "blow" to his life, he can still accomplish many things!! BDA is awesome! We too are changing lives, one friend at a time!!
